Chilled Kongs – Cardano NFT

Chilled Kongs is a project that acts as a reminder to chill from time to time and enjoy the good things in life.

Concept

In today’s world, there are a lot of stressful situations that make us forget how to relax once in while and enjoy the moment. Chilled Kongs are here to remind us that, in their own unique way. Specifically, teach us the value of taking a moment to chill, hangout with our friends or just do whatever we love the most. This is a PFP collection of unique Gorillas, and they all have one thing in common – they are experts at enjoying life. Generally, the whole concept is really thoughtful and a great wake up call for most of us.

Team

If you enter the website you will be able to see a whole section for the team but no more than their names is displayed. What I would like to see is some more information for them, like for example their background or a few words about themselves.

So we have the founders of the project and those are Deckard and OccyDeckard is also the Lead Artist and the only one that put up his Instagram account for us to get familiar with him. Moreover, we have Caesar, who is the Developer and Kongsmob the Marketing Manager. And lastly there’s Aizen the secondary Artist and Hare the Researcher (Although I have no idea what he does and that is exactly why there needs to be something like a small summary).

Furthermore, I would like to note the transparency of the team about matters that surround the project. And of course their effort to gain the trust of the community. So far I have to admit they did an excellent job at that with their friendly and welcoming attitude. Finally, there is an AMA archive that you can read on their Discord, mainly with Deckard answering questions of the community. And I hope that this will be the case moving on (and not only with Deckard) – AMAs are an important factor for a project.

Discord & Twitter

Even though the project is completely new, it grew a lot in a short period of time. Basically it counts more than 7k members, Discord and Twitter combined. Also, the engagement it receives is phenomenal – making me wonder if its just the Apes theme that is popular in the NFT space or Kongsmob is an amazing Marketing Manager. Do not get me wrong, I don’t doubt him – I am sure he does an excellent job; That’s just me, wondering! In brief, there is an active and strong community supporting the project and I love it.

Artwork

The artwork reminds me a lot of the BAYC (Bored Apes Yacht Club) but with a slight difference – the use of Gorillas. So, a generative artwork of a Gorilla with over 170 traits that make each PFP unique. Lastly, I can see the amount of effort put for their creation, just from the clear and detailed artwork.

You can see some examples of the artwork below:

Website

The website in its simplicity is quite professional I have to admit. It basically contains most of the information that a project needs to include. But with a small objection in the team section, where as I mention above, I would like to see a few words on each members or at least include some social accounts , much like Deckard.

Roadmap

The roadmap is a simple picture with three main focuses: the Community growth, some Donations and Royalties. Taking into account the answer of Deckard from the AMA, then it makes perfect sense why there is nothing else. In particular, he said that a roadmap takes away their flexibility and that you have to stick to it. And if some technical issues arise and you have to change something in it – it will affect negatively the project among the community.

I can agree with most of the above statement like for example the flexibility it takes away. Plus I want to add that a roadmap is of course not necessary if you are an art-based project. And you are confident enough with the quality of your artwork. But why does those changes have to affect the project negatively? I mean that it is the responsibility of the team to either fix the problem or give a transparent explanation.

Anyway, I respect the decision of the team to move according to their inspiration and add to the project. And maybe this will be the correct way.

For more details check the roadmap here.

Closing Thoughts

The project pretty much has it all, a chilled and confident team – with transparency being their strong suit. Also, a truly supportive community, members of which are ecstatic about the project. Moreover, an artwork that brings the quality needed to support the excitement of the community. And finally details such as the quality of the website and a different approach to the roadmap.
